The Rogue Nation of Humdingerville is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by All Mighty Overlord with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, sprawling nuclear power plants, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 36.54 billion Humdingervilleans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Humdingerville City. The average income tax rate is 38.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Humdingervillean economy, worth a remarkable 9,553 trillion hibbletons a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 261,444 hibbletons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation threatens sanctions on islands only visible at low tide, All Mighty Overlord is too busy listening to praise to get any work done, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Humdingerville's national animal is the evil goat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is pantheism.

Humdingerville is ranked 16,526th in the world and 573rd in Osiris for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring 6,451.25 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
